People will Talk 1951

At the risk of spoiling the movie, here are all my favorite quotes. Old movies always have such zingers.      “You’re a professor and it’s hard to make you understand anything that ain’t in a book. Well most of what goes on in the world ain’t in a book.”   ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~   “One of… Continue reading People will Talk 1951

What I Watched May 2021

Movies I’ve been trying to keep up with watching movies on the weekend. They’ve all been old ones this month. Dial M for Murder. Grace Kelly. I guess worth a watch, not really that intriguing to me as it wasn’t funny or or mysterious. And the suspense wasn’t all that extreme either. Listen, Darling. This… Continue reading What I Watched May 2021

My Favorite Wife with Cary Grant

I’ve been trying to work on my movie lists, watching a couple every weekend. I don’t know if My Favorite Wife was on my list or it just popped up on Amazon (I think it was a $1.99 rental, but then maybe that was because I wasn’t looking on my dad’s Prime, but on my own… Continue reading My Favorite Wife with Cary Grant

What I Watched: April and May 2019

The Perfect Date. This was so awful I’m ashamed I finished it. The lines were like stereotypes of cliches of stereotypes. Just absolutely mind-numbingly stupid. Little Women (modern). This was adorable. I loved the switching between past and current times. I liked the professor and didn’t like Laurie, so I wasn’t near as mad about… Continue reading What I Watched: April and May 2019

Classic Hollywood Movies I’ve Watched This Quarter

I’ve watched 8 classic Hollywood movies, most of them from my lists. To Catch a Thief, 1955A famous movie starring two famous actors. I think that its overrated. I found it interesting enough, and I laughed, but the humor isn’t particularly witty. The identity of the thief isn’t surprising (and I’m easily mislead or at… Continue reading Classic Hollywood Movies I’ve Watched This Quarter

Classic Hollywood Celebration: Friendly Persuasion Review

I am linking up here again. Former friends introduced me to Friendly Persuasion years ago. I watched it by myself first and enjoyed it and then more recently watched it several times with my mom and sisters. This 1956 film features actors Gary Cooper and Anthony Perkins and actress Dorothy McGuire (whom we’ve seen in… Continue reading Classic Hollywood Celebration: Friendly Persuasion Review

A Celebration of Classic Hollywood Week: Film Review of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

I’m linking up at An Old-Fashioned Girl for A Celebration of Classic Hollywood Week. Since I seem to be either criticizing or incoherently fangirling or only noting a few details when I write about movies, I thought I’d better look up some more formal guidelines for movie reviewing. I found two printouts from the Thompson… Continue reading A Celebration of Classic Hollywood Week: Film Review of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

More Old Movies on Amazon Prime and AFI’s Top Old Hollywood Actors and Actresses List

Made for Each Other (1939)A little humor, sweetness, romance, and drama. I liked it much better than Penny Serenade (I considered the simple home life genre similar), but it received much poorer ratings. Jimmy Stewart (and what a man: Reagan Republican and WWII hero!) is much handsomer and nicer seeming than Cary Grant (who I… Continue reading More Old Movies on Amazon Prime and AFI’s Top Old Hollywood Actors and Actresses List

How to Steal a Million (1966)

This post contains SPOILERS. ************ With my accent I have trouble pronouncing “steal” so near to “million” in the same sentence. I want to say, “How to Still a Million.” I was somewhat confused as to how I was supposed to pronounce “million.” I normally pronounce “steal” as “stEEl” and “million” as “millyen.” If you… Continue reading How to Steal a Million (1966)

A Few More “Silver Screen” Movies

I had a brief period of Amazon Prime in the summer, so I watched some old films from my list. A Penny Serenade (1941) Boring, especially for the length. His Girl Friday (1940) -Both leading characters were hysterical . . . and that poor goof of a fiancé -I felt that the ending failed miserably-as… Continue reading A Few More “Silver Screen” Movies
